Preparation advice.

Can't you just recite from memory how to dismantle an SA80 instead of relying on a replica. Already seen one demonstration and I could easily replicate it.

Thanks for emphasising the swimming aspect. Do those overalls make much of a difference in water?.

They can do, and quite dramatically, I had the misfortune of the Velcro the closed them up giving way on my swimming test, this is not something you want to happen!

Hi,

I would like to begin preparing for my inception into the RN I have several months however I'm not sure where to start. I spoke to a cool chap from the recruitment office, Chris 22yrs as CIS.

I suggested: map reading since navigation is imperative, running in boots to familiarise myself with that type of terrain, carrying a piece of paracord around to manipulate; there is something like 50+ knots one can utilise, medic life-hacks for example sugar placed on a small laceration helps remove moisture and accelerate the healing process because its hygroscopic, learning the dismantling and reassembling of SA80.

I would love sources to material so I can read about the command structure, rules of engagement, conflict resolution models if they exist, historic battles with heroic sailors so I can learn their humility.

P.s.
This is genuine but in case you do perceive this as insanity, I'd rather you interpret it as misguided enthusiasm.

Cheers.

The Prince of Wales is in Liverpool for a few Days, I'll be popping over to see that!. Personally I'd rather work on the gorgeous T45. Dw not going to make a fool of myself there, only on here with limited liability :).

Settle it down people. Crayoning on threads is not acceptable, especially in this forum. People come on here to get advice - be respectful. Everybody is entitled to a bone question from time to time.

If you want to play, there is Lil's and the Barge for that.

Agree, but there's asking a question then there's coming across as 'a know all'. The latter is asking for incoming!!
